Jim Morrison arrest mugshot for warrant of exposing himself during a concert in Miami - March 1, 1969.
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
God bless her
This is who I want to be when I grow up.

Rashi’s Daughters (Yocheved, Miriam, and Rachel), 11th century

Yocheved, Miriam, and Rachel were the daughters of Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki (Rashi), a medieval French Jewish scholar and teacher. One of the greatest thinkers in Jewish history, Rashi’s commentary on the Torah and Tanakh remains influential to this day. His writings have been included in every edition of the Talmud since its first printing in the 1520s.
Legend says that Rashi’s daughters were well versed in Jewish theology, highly unusual for the period. Rashi’s notes state that one of his daughters served as his secretary and scribe, but her name is not recorded. Miriam was singled out by later scholars as a particular expert on Jewish rituals. Some believe that Rashi’s daughters wore tefillin, a practice generally reserved for Jewish men, but this is a highly controversial idea.
Yocheved and Miriam married well known scholars. Their descendants included prominent rabbis and learned women. Rachel’s life is largely unknown, but she divorced a husband and is thought to have had children. There may have been a fourth, much younger sister who died very young.
